I am looking forward to both projects!

For those who do not wish to plough through tons of postings and linked articles, it appears that we will be able to see the two projects thus:

* feature film documentary - as of June 2009 in NYC; other cities??? (I am hoping that the E Street Cinema in Wash, DC will pick it up!)

* 8-part TV series - commencing January 2010 on Sundance cable channel

The two projects are totally unique and not repeats. The movie follows Johnny's career up through the 2006/07 season. The TV series picks things up after that season and takes him to the present, which may include the 2010 Olympics. The last episode of the TV series will air AFTER those 2010 Olys.

I think it was but not in Johnny's ankle. I'm under the impression that one of his fans has tattoed his autograph in her ankle.

Thanks for the post Frau Muller.

Perez posted the teaser on Monday. (http://perezhilton.com/2009-05-18-pop-star-on-ice)

"Pop Star on Ice" appears to cover Johnny's career up through his coaching change and the 2007/08 season, ending with his bronze medal at worlds. The documentary crew began following him in 2006/07 season, but there appears to be some archival footage used too.

Awesome job, HisWeirness!! :respec:

EYS, I think I've read about it somewhere.

Can't wait to see this! Johnny has such a hilarious take on figure skating and the world. I love reading his monthly favourites on his website.

That's what I was afraid of!

I believe one of Johnny's fans asked him to autograph her ankle. He obliged and she then had the signature tatooed.

More info from Ice Network: http://web.icenetwork.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20090521&content_id=4857880&vkey=ice_pressrelease


The film will screen on the festival circuit throughout the summer, before airing on the Sundance Channel in the fall to coincide with the ISU Grand Prix Series.

So, the "Pop Star on Ice" film will be on the Sundance channel in the fall? I need to find someone to DVR->DVD this for me! :D Anyway, I hope the DVD goes on sale soon after that for all of us who do not have the channel.


Weir recently joined the Board of Governors of nPlay, a non-profit organization that is uniting athletes from across the sports world devoted to fighting childhood obesity and a healthy lifestyle for young Americans.

Weir also recently announced a self-designed fashion line called "Be Unique" that will be launched in Korea in the upcoming weeks.

This is the first I heard of the fashion line. :cool:
On a silly note :P, kids probably shouldn't follow Johnny's "diet" as an example of good eating habits....:shuffle: ;)

Look, I'm all for battling obesity, but not with anorexia...:shuffle:

This makes as much sense as Lysacek selling Coke and Chan selling Macdonalds while promoting a healthy lifestyle. :scream: At least the last two are getting paid.

And items from the "Be Unique" line will be produced en masse and worn by millions of teenagers worldwide?? :P
